Claude Monet lived in his house in Giverny for 43 years, from 1883 to 1926. With a passion for gardening and colour, he conceived both his flower
garden and his water garden as true works of art.
The pink house with the green shutters is home to the Fondation Claude Monet. It offers an excellent insight into the painter's daily life. You can see his light-flooded studio, the "blue salon", the "yellow dining room" and the amazing garden.
The water lily pond with the Japanese bridge in the water garden inspired Monet to paint hundreds of pictures.
